Emilia Greenleaf's (Portman) falls for a married man and has a baby with him. The Lawyer Jack Woolf (Cohen) is only happy with his kid William (Tahan) while Jack's ex-wife doctor Carolyn (Kudrow) has high ambitions for his child and is displeased with Emilia. Screenplay was good with lines like "Time heals." and "Sometimes good things happen." Conclusion was disappointing because of its fairy tale like ending for a home-wrecker. Natalie Portman was electrifying as you can see the baggage and pain of her situation while Kudrow surprisingly plays it straight and neurotic. Tahan was good while Cohen fair. The Other Woman is a decent watch about secrets, fidelity, family and trust.
